I thought they had resolved the blogspot problem, but today I see several junk pages ranking well, including the #1 spot for the phrase I am monitoring.

On MSN for the single most common search term for our product, we are now in spots 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 9 :)

I've seen this pattern before, complained to MSN and they must have put a manual fix in place because after two months or so it was right back to where it started.

Don't you think its just a complete waste of a resource?

I cant believe that a company the size of microsoft can produce such a pile of cr@p when it comes to a search engine and do NOTHING about even trying to improve it.

I think they should admit they have no interest in search, no interest in trying to improve on it and just bin the entire project and put it down to a bad experience.

I used msn search far more when it was powered by Yahoo at least it worked back then and provided meaningful results

That's the rub, MS realizes the importance of search and is still playing catch-up. If anything they are going to scrap the current effort and launch something new. I don't expect to see updates on Live.com like we do on Yahoo, I expect to see a whole new approach.

Ditto to that.
I don't even use MSN to search their own MSDN library anymore. Yahoo is better at it.

Blogspots are back. Or, did they never go away? I thought they were working on this over the past 2 years. Junk.
